A FILM about a legendary painter is to be screened in Otley.

Exhibition on Screen: The Curious World of Hieronymus Bosch is on at Otley Courthouse on Thursday, February 9 at 7.30pm. Tickets £9 standard/£8 Courthouse Friends.

A Courthouse spokesperson said: "After 500 years, Bosch’s paintings still shock and fascinate us. Delve into the vivid imagination of a true visionary. This film features the exhibition Visions of Genius at Het Noordbrabants Museum in the southern Netherlands, which brought most of Bosch’s work together for the first time to his hometown and attracted almost half a million art lovers from all over the world.

Where did his unconventional and timeless creations come from? Discover the answers to these questions and more with this remarkable new film by Exhibition on Screen, directed by David Bickerstaff.
